As part of the Dermalogica AGE Smart line - classed as products containing scientifically-advanced ingredients that dramatically address biochemical reactions (triggers of aging). Although many benefits of retinol can be enumerated, irritated skin can be a side effect, for example in the form of itching, burning, redness and palency of the skin. To avoid this retinol reaction, Dermalogica® recommends that you first prepare your skin for use and start with a lower concentration of retinol. Thus, the skin builds a natural retinol receptor and gets used to the ingredient over time. In addition, Dermalogica® advises one step further to combine the new Buffer Cream with Overnight Retinol Repair. This makes it possible to control the concentration of the retinol and to adapt it individually to the skin. In addition, the Buffer Cream soothes and moisturizes the skin with 8% Aloe Vera Extract and contains no ingredients that make retinol irritation worse. As needed, users can more or less use the Buffer Cream. Nevertheless, Dermalogica® recommends starting the application of the Overnight Retinol Repairs and the Buffer Cream in a ratio of 1: 3 and gradually reversing the ratio. Once the skin has become accustomed to the treatment, everyone can approach the retinol personally and individually, depending on the skin comfort, type and condition.
Mix one part Overnight Retinol Repair (ORR) with three parts of Buffer Cream and apply to the skin. Caution in the eye area. Please apply AGE Reversal Eye Complex first.For sensitive skin use ORR the first 14 days only every two nights.After the skin has become accustomed to ORR, increase the proportion of Overnight Retinol Repair in relation to Buffer Cream. If Buffer Cream runs out and your skin has not yet adjusted, it can be replaced with Dermalogica Moisturizer. Optimally apply in the evening, as cell renewal is strongest at night. The Buffer Cream is not sold separately.
